Recently, the renewable energy sector was subject to a continuous streak of changes in regulations that severally impacted on producers. Ultimately, the current regulatory framework calls on the renewable energy producers to develop and assume certain activities in relation to power production forecast, profiling and balancing hence assuming incommensurable risks. As a consequence, the renewable production will become more and more exposed to energy markets while the governmental subsidies will be lowered. Open market exposure requires for professional position management and optimization in order to extract maximum value on the back of acceptable risks.
Renewable production assets are in many cases invested by financial investors who seek project finance. As intermittent production such as wind comes with multifold risks that needs to be structured and managed to achieve project finance by banks, wind farm investors have a natural demand for customized off-take solutions. Furthermore, physical services are required for financial investors.
